Simple and yet very tasty. I wanted to make an appetizer out of ingredients I had on hand, thus this recipe was born. Serve with tortilla chips.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese has melted, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note

Made this as directed. Was very greasy due to the amount of butter and the cheese. The taste of the mushrooms and spices were just o.k. and think it would have been better if fresh were used instead of dried. This was very mediocre for us and would not make as directed again. Maybe with less butter and fresh herbs and spices. Sorry for the bad review. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I made this recipe just as written and we loved it! This would be great on garlic bread. I think next time I make it I will put in a couple of cloves of garlic with the mushrooms while they cook. Thank for a delicious and unique recipe!! Read More

Well I liked this quite a bit. I didn't use any onion and I used fresh garlic instead of garlic salt and fresh parsley rather than dried. Cooked mushrooms until they had lost their juices and were starting to brown then added about 3 cups of spinach along with the other ingredients. Used reduced-fat cheddar cheese and light sour cream. Processed the mixture briefly to get a more uniform chop. Held dip in the refrigerator about 4 hours before baking...husband waited to tell me AFTER I'd put it together that he's not all that fond of mushrooms (8 years married and he can still surprise me!) but I liked it and my company liked it. I'd make it again but I think I'd use a different cheese...Gruyere or Swiss would probably be excellent. Thanks for a keeper! Read More

I followed this recipe exactly and although it was pretty tasty it was also really watery due to all the mushrooms. We actually ended up straining the water when storing the leftovers and it was much better today when heated up. It definitely wasn't my favorite dip though so I will probably not make it again.

This was quite good! I used low fat sour cream and way less butter and it was fine. I tried to be fancy with the cheese but I think the asked for Cheddar would have been better. Read More
